School opened here in 1919, and its venerable features lend an atmosphere of tradition – from the beautiful open air Greek theatre that stands in the grounds near to the tennis courts, to the hymnals still used in assemblies – ‘I’m not a Christian but I enjoy it', a pupil remarked.

What the school says...

Woodford County is an over-subscribed and highly successful grammar school for girls in the London Borough of Redbridge. It has a fine reputation for intellectual, artistic and sporting achievements. In all of these domains and others beside, students are encouraged to explore their own potential, nurturing existing talents and interests and discovering new ones along the way. Proud of the fact that the school's community is a happy and cohesive one, we see it as a major part of our purpose to prepare young people for the roles and responsibilities which will be theirs as adult members of a wider society.

The school is housed in a building of great character, the former manor of Highams built in 1768, and it has extensive and beautiful grounds designed by Humphrey Repton. This setting, and the colourful mix of tradition and innovation in the activities which make up the school year, contribute to the school's very distinctive identity.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

“The School’s SEN policy is in line with the Code of Practice. The School believes that all girls should be given opportunities which will enable each individual to reach her full potential and to make best use of her talents. There is a range of needs and we provide extension activities, support or counselling as appropriate with the resources available to us. Whilst this is a selective school, and we are used to providing challenge for able pupils, we also have experience of catering for mild difficulties. If a child with special needs meets the entry criteria, we would look carefully at how best to meet those needs.” March 2010
